So does this mean in the options menu there will be the existing Cookies 
item and a Save Cookies item?

Though I thought I'd never say it, it seems as if there's almost too many
options..  Though if someone were arguing to get rid of cookies I'd say make
it an option.. heh.

Well, I hope I could set it up from the options menu so I don't have to
give a command line option (obviously I could add it to an alias like I already
do for the other options I use for my 'generic' Lynx alias, 
lynx -nopause -pseudo_inlines -nolist).

I don't think I'd ever use this explicitly, since I use persistent cookies and
obviously want them saved..   Though if Lynx could figure out if the cookie
file were already in use and turn read only usage on if it is, that'd be good.
(If I'm using two Lynxes in different screen windows, for example.)
